NoSQL Databases

with MongoDB, Neo4j and Redis

The video is equivalent to a live 5 day training course. The running time of the videos is approx. 17 hours.

  • Big Data is a Big Deal - and you have to know NoSQL if you want to be current in the development marketplace.
  • With this video training course, you'll be getting hands on experience of MongoDB, Neo4J and Redis, three of the most popular NoSQL databases in the world.
  • If you're a Java programmer, you'll also find detailed topics on how to integrate your applications.
  • You'll also learn why and when you would use each type of database. From Document stores, to Graph Databases and Key/Value stores, you will understand the trade offs and architectures of each type.
The course is suitable for anyone who wants to learn about the exciting new wave of NoSQL databases.

Some optional chapters cover how to integrate with Java and Spring - for these chapters you will need previous knowledge - our Java Fundamentals and Spring Fundamentals courses cover all the Java and Spring knowledge you need for this course.
